An anonymous Canadian foundation has granted two Ottawa brothers, one a Naturopath and the other a thoracic surgeon, 3.85 million dollars to research the use of Naturopathy in the treatment of cancer.  The grant, called the Thoracic Peri-Operative Integrative Surgical Care Evaluation (Thoracic POISE), is the largest of it’s kind in the world.

The research, to be conducted by the Ottawa Integrative Cancer Centre (an arm of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine) and the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, may have significant impact on treatments for some cancer patients.  It displays a huge leap toward the integration of naturopathic treatments and conventional medicine, while adhering to the rigour of scientific, evidence based trials and testing.
